The Masked Singer returned on Saturday as viewers and judges alike tried to guess the identities of the remaining characters. Phoenix took to the stage and performed Elton John’s I’m Still Standing after their latest round of clues left ITV viewers convinced the mystical creature is Neighbours star Jason Donovan.
StewartGaul tweeted: “#Phoenix is Jason Donovan. He was on Strictly. Charlene was a mechanic’s apprentice in Neighbours, and he mentioned liking a barbecue, which is very Australian. #MaskedSingerUK.”
Gemben82 agreed: “Phoenix is Jason Donovan and no one is telling me otherwise!”
“Phoenix is Jason Donovan. War of the worlds. Strictly. 30 years of neighbours. Dancing on ice. Singer. He rose from the ashes of drugs and a law suit. #TheMaskedSingeruk,” Madmaxcapon added.
CharlCharles_ wrote: “I know the voice and the name I have written down, that after these clues I’m sure add up to him. I’m pretty sure Phoenix is Jason Donovan! #MaskedSingerUK.”
Phoenix’s riddle was: “I’m all flame and fire, my feathers ablaze, it may intrigue you to learn, I’ve been a catchphrase.”
Other clues include that they are good at “following a trail” and they have been shown inspecting footprints with a magnifying glass.
Phoenix has been “born anew”, “reincarnated” and was quiet as a child.
Meanwhile, Katherine Ryan was the latest celebrity to be unveiled on The Masked Singer.
The comedian was unmasked and revealed she was one month away from giving birth to her third child during filming.
“I have a month left,” she said. “I feel like I have a baby’s foot in my lung at most times and it is actually harder than I thought.
“But you can’t tell my daughter anything because she would spill it to the whole school so she’ll be finding out along with everyone else!”
The judges were stunned and praised Katherine on her ability to pull off an Essex accent.
“I can only do a sort of Essex accent because I watch so much reality TV,” she said.
The Masked Singer continues on ITV on Saturday at 7pm.
